Kaplan Sample Test Online vs Book

Post Thu Jul 20, 2006 3:25 pm
Hi guys,
I did the Kaplan's book test, and using their calculation (correct - 0.25 x wrong) and got 670. But when I was taking their free online test, I realized it was the exact same test as in the book. Plugging the exact same answers, I scored 710. Any idea why? And which one is the more accurate to the real thing?

Thanks,
joe

I'm very skeptical about the Kaplan book test's scoring method. As far as I know, the scoring algorithm for the actual GMAT is more complicated. I can't tell you why you are receiving different scores from the book vs. online.

Use GMATPrep to see practice tests that accurately represent the real GMAT.

Best of luck!
